Song of Solomon 8:6-8 New English Translation (NET Bible)

The Nature of True Love

The Beloved to Her Lover:

Set me like a cylinder seal over your heart,
like a signet on your arm.
For love is as strong as death,
passion is as unrelenting as Sheol.
Its flames burst forth,
it is a blazing flame.
Surging waters cannot quench love;
floodwaters cannot overflow it.
If someone were to offer all his possessions to buy love,
the offer would be utterly despised.

The Brother’s Plan and the Sister’s Reward

The Beloved’s Brothers:

We have a little sister,
and as yet she has no breasts.
What shall we do for our sister
on the day when she is spoken for?
